developed a citywide water supply system. sullivan: in 1630, boston was basically three mountains, there were very steep hills. waste would run down quickly and dump into the harbor. and the tide would carry most of it away. well, this worked well for a while. the problem was, as boston wanted to expand, it started filling in the mudflats. the water could come rushing down the hill, it would hit the flat area and slow down. at high tide, it couldn't get out at all. it got so bad that the city took over, 'cause the city has a responsibility to protect its citizens. boston built the first modern sewer system in the united states. ours was completed between 1877 and 1884. with this wonderful new sewer system, we were taking our filth and moving it out to the ocean. of course, all of this was untreated. in the 1960s, we were still pumping all of our sewage out to moon island, untreated. we would get swimmers here, never knowing, in the middle of summer, why you would have a cold. well, we were swimming in diluted sewage. melosi: the major way to deal with pollution, at least until ear
. and it's blustery and cold from boston through new england. of course, this time of year when you get that cold air, you're going to get the lake-effect snow. we've had it all weekend long on and off. we're getting heavy lake effect now trying to shift down towards oswego, new york and trying to sink into the syracuse area. just be careful driving on the throughway and also northern portions interstate 81. late today as we get moisture returning from the gulf, a little bit of warmer air. we may get a few strong thunderstorms here in northern louisiana down through areas of east texas. just north of houston. the threat of large hail and a little buiit of wind damage. at least one nice day today in the southeast. a little chilly in the northeast. lynn, it looks like that storm that's going to affect areas of the deep south could bring a little bit of rain and snow to some areas of the northeast throughout your tuesday. i'll tell you who can expect a little bit of snowfall a little later. >> bill, thanks so much. >>> well, evidence overlooked in the casey anthony murder trial. and an all
this was the only way to file right away and it was something that was made by a company called leefax out of boston, some guys from and they were making scanning equipment to digitize negatives and take it back to wherever the printing presses were. but at any rate, john literally put on something that locked like a -- looked like scuba diving gear on his back. i kid you not. it was that big. it was a huge backpack and had a cable running into the camera. he transmitted that back to news day and made the paper and it was noisy as hell. it was a very grainy image, very messy image. it was not anything that you would see from film. but at any rate, that is the kind of stuff that people were dealing with 25 years ago. and when digital cameras first came out, i was one of the last who wanted one. >> exactly, i remember. >> because, because, because the images were very noisy, the cameras were very heavy, they big and objetrusivobtrusive. but today you look at what we are using now, michelle has a bigger camera which is probably of a norm, but this is a digital camera here and it will make a file probab
manhattan, greenwich, where people have just accumulated -- boston, wherever, just remarkable wealth, vast sums of wealth. the land and gentry. and you sit there and go, you know what? these people that live in these mansions and have private jets and live an extraordinary life like few americans lived 30 years ago, they can probably deal with a 20% tax rate on capital gains instead of 15%. i don't think that's going to wreck the economy. and i think there are a lot of republicans that are saying what a few of us were saying after the election. bill kristol said it. so tell me again, why are we fighting and risking our majorities, protecting billionaires that are hedge fund guys who are paying 14% tax rates? >> walk two blocks from this street, fifth avenue between this building and 57th street, and the storefronts on fifth avenue. anybody who can go into those storefronts and purchase things in those storefronts are not going to be damaged by these tax reforms that we've been talking about. they're not going to be damaged. >> by the way, the storefronts aren't going to be damaged by raisi
island, and for atlantic city, places like boston, generally speaking, we're starting out as rain, and maybe a rain/snow mix. and then we're looking at it changing over to all rain. well, the frontal system is making its way towards the eastern seaboard, computer models probably overdoing the snowfall just a little bit. i think if anything, a half inch or an inch. but we're not looking at big, sick amounts. however quite a different story back across texas into louisiana and arkansas, with a chance for some hail. strong winds. and possibility of some tornadoes going into the afternoon. this is going to be an afternoon event, and the rest is just slight across this region. in new york, those readings will be in the 40s today. but for new york city, on tuesday, only into the 30s. and then we see this slow upward tick as far as the temperatures go. so, john, it looks like it's going to be fairly messy for people who are going to try to still be recovering from superstorm sandy. >> starting when, karen, was that? >> this will be on tuesday. it will start tonight, and going into tuesda
